The blank template allows you to have students write in information. If the person explaining gets stuck, the other person may help them with their thinking. I'd love to take the time to do more, but we've got more than enough stuff to cover in Algebra 2. As we work I emphasize to my students that this foldable can serve as a study aid. . I give students about 30 seconds to think and then ask them to respond.

Fifth grade math interactive notebook for decimal operations can be used to teach and practice adding decimals, subtracting decimals, multiplying decimals, and dividing decimals. I had really emphasized that whatever we do to the numerator, we have to do to the denominator. If students are relying on procedural knowledge they are less likely to grasp that adding 7. Open to the inside of the booklet foldable: A quick review of reducing fractions. I gave them the green boxes and asked them to figure out how to make an equivalent fraction. Worksheet will open in a new window.

The students will also be able to recognize words that will help them identify when a word problem is asking them to add, subtract, multiply or divide. In past lessons we have compared rational numbers and located numbers on a number line. The students give me a number and I apply the rule to it, without telling them the rule. The nice thing is that you don't necessary have to use them in interactive notebooks. For some reason, they just see fractions and want to cross multiply.

Lesson Segment 3: What operation is needed to find the answer? After the giving several responses to students I have them guess the rule I have in my head. Students will be adding decimals, subtracting decimals, multiplying decimals, and dividing decimals. Someday I will make some original foldables, but with a new curriculum implementation that is a very low priority at this moment. The answers for these estimated problems will be 0-9. Each group will receive a small whiteboard, marker, and eraser.

The class will look at their problem on the board. Students will place this final foldable in their Math notebooks as a reference when the student needs a refresher on decimals. Then, show the second problem on the overhead and repeat until you have shown all nine problems. I start by passing out the foldable and showing students how to fold the flaps as quarters. This time, though, I connected it to the idea of equivalent fractions we had just gone over. When I think of a rule, I give the students parameters for numbers they may guess. Round to 450 and 90.

At the end of the game, those pairs who have the correct digit marker left off the board win. To create a study resource, I will give my students a worksheet. How can I predict whether the answer to a problem using fractions or decimals will be an increase or a decrease of the original value? Each player places a marker on Start on the Game Board. After students finish gluing down the puzzle pieces, they will reflect upon their learning. The inside of the foldable is intended to be a guided activity to solidify procedures using decimals. The answer should be written on the group's whiteboard.

There are also decimal word problems in which students must determine the operation to use and then solve the problems. I have students go this process of recording the rule, writing an example and then sharing with their neighbor for the remaining three operations. I need my kids to not freak out when we start working with rational expressions soon. Then, I decided to review two things that I get students asking about a lot. Anyway, today was a half day and it was the perfect amount of time to correct homework and then finish a foldable they started last week when we were doing addition and subtraction of rational numbers.

All work must be recorded on assignment. I will have students create a foldable to organize the rules and then apply their knowledge by solving problems with each type of operation. After students work independently for 10 minutes, I will select students to show their work on the board. You can make the foldable double sided or you can have two separate foldables. The foldables includes the steps and an example for each method.
